Are your Google apps still crashing in your Android phone? If yes, then Google has found the solution for it. It was on Monday when apps like Gmail and G Pay were crashing continuously for many users. Google has now found the root cause of this problem and announced the solution for you.
How to Fix the Crashing of Apps on Your Android Phone?
The root cause lies in your Android System WebView app that allows you to access web pages through your apps. The recent updates of this app had the bug that led to crashing of all your apps.
However, there are higher chances that you’ll have to slightly do some work with your phone if your problem isn’t solved yet. There are 3 ways in which you can solve this problem:
- Open Google Play Store.
- Go to “My Apps & Games” and select Android System WebView.
- Hit “Uninstall”.
- Reboot your phone.
- Then, go to play store and install the app again.
Now some phones might not allow you to uninstall the app in the first place. Here’s the alternative then.
- Open your Phone Settings and go to Apps.
- Here, you select the Android System WebView app.
- On the top right corner, you’ll find 3 dots. Tap here and select “Uninstall updates”.
If this too doesn’t work, here is something else you can try.
- Open your Play Store and check the Google Chrome app.
- Check which version you have.
- You need to update the app to the version 89.0.4389.105.
Google apologizes for the inconvenience caused to you and ensures that the above methods will solve your problems. Do work with the Android System WebView first and then check your Chrome version.
